hi guuys i hoep someone can help me with this. im re-finishing my jackson and im taking all the patrs off. i cant figure out how to remove the ferrules that are in the body where the tune o matic bridge posts go in. i already got the string thru body ferrules (some splitting wood issues there but il fix that up before the paint hits it. so anyway does anyone know how to do this?
tape them over instead?
ya ive been considering that. im doing s swirl job so hopefully itl work out with tape.
You should be able to just pull them out. Put the screw into the ferrule and wrap a rag or something around it to prevent marring the screw, then just get some slip-groove pliers and pull it out. Taping them over may not work. The tape could come off in the water or the paint could seep under it.
ya i just pulled them out. i was just afraid of stripping the posts but they came out fine
